I can’t believe it! Summer is almost over and I have yet to make it to the beach. That’s right – no sandy feet, looking for shells or even much of a sunburn…and I got that at a garage sale! But there’s a church beach party coming soon and I signed up to bring a dessert. What to bring, what to bring? Then I came upon the perfect thing – S’More Bites! I have to admit that I am not much of a traditional S’More lover. Even though I love the taste of this traditional campfire treat, I have an aversion to so many unwashed hands reaching into the same marshmallow bag and the struggling to assemble them, not to mention the messy hands and faces that result while eating them. I know…I’m such a old fuddyduddy! But when I saw these little S’More Bites with the same flavors, pre-assembled and bundled up in one bite (or two), I knew that these would hit the spot, at least for me! (Adapted from the recipe at Pampered Chef.) S’More Bites 7 whole graham crackers (1 cup, finely crushed) 1/4 cup powdered sugar 6 tablespoons butter, melted 4 bars (1.55 ounces) milk chocolate, divided into sections – I decided to make these late at night and didn’t have candy bars, so I used a bag of Nestle’s Milk Chocolate Chips 12 large marshmallows, cut in half height-wise – I had Jumbo Kraft marshmallows,
Summer is a wonderful time for fresh fruits to be incorporated into as many recipes as I possibly can. Raspberries are one of my favorites. When they are on sale I am even happier! I bought several pints of them with the intent of making jam, but when I realized that it was time for another guest blog spot with Rhodes, I knew it would be the perfect time to experiment! You can hop on over to the Rhodes Bake-N-Serv Blog to get step-by-step directions for this easy and yummy recipe…it is good enough to heat up the oven and bake, even in the summer!
